Taco Bell is my favorite restaurant in the world. Not only do they provide delicious, cheesy, melty food at an affordable price, but they also understand their consumer base better than any other fast food chain I can think of. The fact that they stay open sometimes until 4am shows their love for those wanting 4th meal - or sometimes - 5th meal. In celebration of Taco Bell providing the Cave Dwellers our Opening Night Meal, let’s discuss my favorite menu items!
9 – Enchirito
Thanks to my good friend #kurtfisette for introducing this to me in middle school. I always said “the best food is just meat cheese and sauce” and this is exactly that. It’s so saucy and cheesy; you have to eat it with a spork. Double points for only providing sporks.
8 - Double Decker Taco
I sometimes can’t decide if I want a taco or a burrito. This provides both. The man who thought of this is as brilliant as the man who innovated the idea of putting a toilet indoors. It’s so simple!
7 – Cheese Roll-Up
“Welcome to Taco Bell. What would you like?” “Cheese melted on a tortilla and that’s it!” “Of course, sir.” Best. Transaction. Ever.
6 - Crunchwrap Supreme
I don’t know why this discus is so alluring. It’s probably because it’s shaped like a UFO. I rarely order this item, but when I get a craving for it, it’s terribly powerful. Sometimes you just need to eat a taco UFO.
5 - 1/2 Combo Burrito
What a gluttonous gem! I honestly don’t think there is enough in this burrito. More is more, Taco Bell. Take note.
4 - Beefy Melt Burrito
This is no longer on the Taco Bell menu, sadly, but it’s so good I have to include it. Forget begging for Doritos Tacos – I want to set up a campaign to bring back this gooey cheesy delight.
3 - Hard Taco
Get Hard. Soft tacos are for girls. This is the foundation of Taco Bell and for 89¢, it’s heaven on earth. I recommend consuming 21 in 30 minutes. As a teen, eating 12 in one sitting was nothing. Crunch!
2 – XXL Grilled Stuffed Burrito
This is the only menu item that I get that can fill me up on its own. It’s a full steak meal in a crunchy, yet chewy tortilla. I get it with no rice, though, so to supplement the rice, I add more cheese. Ugh… I want one right now.
1 - Cheesy Gordita Crunch
Take a normal taco and add a mystery sauce. (The sauce is probably not a mystery, but I sure as heckfire can’t pinpoint it.) Add melty cheese to the outside of the shell wrapped in a fluffy Gordita shell and you have a warm pillow for your taste buds.
Honorable Mention: Cheesy Beef and Bean Burrito
I don’t know what happened to this burrito, but it was exactly as the title advertised. Cheese, Beef, Bean. That’s it. I miss this item very much and wish it came back.
